Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of treatment for a wide range of conditions. It also offers a way of optimising health and well-being. From its beginnings in China over three thousand years ago, Acupuncture has developed across the world to become one of a number of branches of medicine that is contributing towards public healthcare.
Acupuncture is a natural, non-toxic system of medicine. The principal method of treatment involves rebalancing the flow of energy know as Qi that runs throughout the body. It is blockages in this energy that causes the disharmony that can lead to illness and emotional problems such as stress and anxiety.
The Qi is accessed by inserting very fine needles at specific points along the body's energy pathways (meridians) and this action allows our bodies to correct the flow of energy to alleviate the symptoms.
Acupuncture treats the whole person to balance the physical and emotional aspects of the individual. Chinese medicine uses a range of treatments such as acupressure, cupping and moxibustion along side acupuncture.
Cupping is a treatment method used to remove tightness in the muscles, which can bring welcomed pain relief to specific areas on the body such as the shoulders where many of us carry tension. When the cup is placed on the body a vacuum is created and this has the same affect as a deep massage to loosen off areas of tight muscles.
It is this deep massage effect that helps to free the flow of Qi and therefore assists with the reduction of pain.
